MINISTRY OPPORTUNITIES AVAILABLE

YoungLife Camp & Caring

Young Life is sending kids to camp and we can help in two ways.  First, we can donate to young life to help offer scholarships for kids to attend camp at Washington Family Ranch.  Second, we can help kids learn to serve by giving them odd jobs and yard work opportunities.  There is no obligation to donate for work done-it's a FREE service.  If you, or someone you know, need help in your yard or around your house, please give Cleone Davis a call at 541-549-1424.  She is our church contact person for this program and can sign you up for a time slot.
Times that the kids are available to work are the following:
Mondays 4-6pm
Wednesdays 11am-1pm (starting after June 15th)
2 & 4th Thursdays 4-6pm
Fridays 10am-12pm
Fridays 12-2pm
Thank you for helping support the kids in our community so that they can learn about the love of God at camp!
